medicare and raise taxes on middle-class families all while handing out more tax breaks to the wealthy. the ryan republican budget is anything but balanced and it reflects the same backward value americans rejected in november. instead of asking the wealthiest to contribute their fair share, the ryan republican budget demands middle-class families pay more in taxes. instead of ending wasteful corporate tax loopholes, it basically ends medicare. in fact, the ryan republican budget takes special aim at health care. it would eliminate free preventive health services for 34 million americans. the ryan republican budget would increase prescription drug prices for seniors by $2.5 billion in one year. it would end the coverage guarantees for 3.1 million young men and women on their parents health plans. the budget would end coverage for mammograms, cervical cancer screenings and contraception for more than 47 million women. and it would allow insurance companies to deny care for 17 million children simply because they were born with a heart defect or some other illness. these drastic cuts wil
to end medicare as we know it. nobody, as in the ryan budget, wants to reduce taxes dramatically on the wealthiest americans -- 39% to 25% -- and then take away deductions from middle-class people, good deductions that make sense like the mortgage deduction, the charitable deduction, the retitle deduction, the health care reduction. no, no wants to do that. and no one wants to eat our seed corn. investment in education, investment in infrastructure, investment in sign b scientific research in order to keep narrow loopholes open, reductions if you move the business overseas. no, they don't want to debate that. but now we have a budget. because of the leadership of the chair of the budget committee and the members of her committee -- and, by the way, this is no -- this is not a small group of democrats. it runs from our most liberal members to our most conservative members, all united around the budget that is fiscally responsible. it meets the gramm-rudman -- i mean, i'm on old guy -- the simpson-bowles constraints, budget target. it invests in jobs in the economy, and closes loop

washington times" -- there are no sacred cows that calls for $1 trillion in new taxes. what's your takeaway? guest: well, what it does is also call for substantial cuts, but it deals with deficit reduction in a balanced way. what the republicans want to do is do deficit reduction simply by cutting, cutting, cutting. doing away with medicare as we know it. right now converting that into a voucher system which we very, very onerous for senior citizens, making devastating cuts in medicaid which means that millions of millions of american people and kids will lose their health insurance. massive cuts in education, in nutrition. basically every program that in the middle of a terrible recession working people depend upon would be done away with. what my view is -- i think the senate agrees what the committee is moving toward is to say, wait a second, we are seeing a middle class collapse, poverty at a high rate while the wealthiest and corporations are doing extraordinarily well. we are looking at record breaking profits for corporations and yet their effective tax rate is the lowest since 1972.

of middle-class families while the wealthiest americans get yet another tax break. after wasting valuable time last congress, voting more than 30 times to repeal health care reform rather than focus on jobs and the economy, the republican budget again calls for its repeal. in addition, their budget ends medicare as we know it, and surprise, surprise, turning it into a voucher program that reduces benefits and leaves seniors paying higher out-of-pocket costs. while this budget blueprint is still lacking in specific details, it is clear that in order to meet the spending targets it outlines, house republicans will slash investments in key areas that are essential to economic growth and job creation, education, job training, science and research will all be on the chopping block in order to reduce the deficit with little regard for the jobs that would be lost and the impact it would have on our nation's competitiveness. the republican budget factors and the sequestration's arbitrary cuts over the next decade, something else that's being rejected by the american people. for new mexico, this m
